MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWeโ€™ve been on the go since July because we entered the UEFA Cup through the Intertoto. โ€œItโ€™s been a long, long time and I didnโ€™t come this far for us to fail, weโ€™ve gone in as a strongly as we could. โ€œBut maybe, not tonight, not tomorrow but Iโ€™ll maybe think itโ€™s a blessing in disguise.โ€ Martin O'Neill.
